Billy V: Bruno Mars, Blaze Mancillas, Keali'i Reichel

Posted: Updated:

(Hawaii News Now) - Bruno Mars' nearly three-month-old "Unorthodox Jukebox" reached No. 1 on the U.S. album chart, on the back of a one-day $1.99 digital sale at Amazon. Last week, "Jukebox" occupied the No. 2 slot, the same position it took on its release in December.

Look for Blaze Mancillas, a Chaminade alum, in Friday's episode of CBS' latest cop drama, "Golden Boy." Mancillas appears as Arroyo Jr., a somewhat cocky rookie NYPD officer who is the son of veteran officer Tony Arroyo in the new show, which premiered Tuesday but moves to Friday this week. Local theater-goers may recall Mancillas in such Chaminade shows as "Pippin," "Amadeus" and "Waiting for Godot," or as a Po'okela Award-winning actor in The Actors' Group's "Mass Appeal."

High up in the mountain tops of Japan, a teacher becomes one with the snow. Is it some martial arts person? No, itʻs Kumu Hula Kealiʻi Reichel having some R&R after being in the recording studios; he is home today and will be a judge in the upcoming Merrie Monarch Festival in April.
